Many children want to know where stories come from and how a book is made. Marie-Louise Gay's new picture book provides them some answers though a fictional encounter between an author and some very curious children. Together, they write and illustrate a story. Marie-Louise Gay has scribbled, sketched, scrawled, doodled, penciled, collaged, and painted the words and pictures of a story-within-a-story that show how brilliant ideas creep up on you when you least expect it and how words sometimes float out of nowhere, asking to be written

Stella, as always, has an answer for every question. Marie-Louise Gay's whimsical prose and enchanting illustrations capture the joys of young children making their first discoveries of the world around them
